Pi Day 2013 Observed

Every March there comes an important holiday.  This holiday is a special day where geeks everywhere can gorge themselves and feel intellectual while doing so.  It is a celebration of homophones, of ratios, and baked treats.

Of course, the day I refer to is Pi Day.  Since pi is approximately 3.14, that makes March 14th (3/14) an excellent day to celebrate.  However, the key to the celebration is the delicious food that happens to share a pronunciation with everyone's favorite ratio.  That delicious food is pie.

This year, we were attending an adoption chat night on the actual Pi day.  So we decided to observe pi day on Saturday.

Robyn got these festive flyers from one of her coworkers.  They helped make our celebration even more awesome.

She also set things up to make everything aesthetically pleasing.  I've been celebrating pi day longer than I've known Robyn, but she definitely improved the look of the event.

She even made pizza pie as an appetizer before all of the other pies arrived.
Of course, after people started coming, we ate pie, and of course the pies were judged and awarded.

First place received a 15 dollar gift card so they could buy pie.
Second placed got some baking supplies so they could make pie
Third place got a protractor, a ruler and a notebook so they could calculate pi.

Top right: first place, caramel pear pie.  Top left: second place key lime pie.  Bottom left; third place apple pie.  All were delicious
Robyn labelled my cup so no one would steal it.  I'm a QT Pi.
After all the pie, we hung out and had a good time.  We did important things like grill my friend Kayli about her love life.  We tried to convince Dann to wager money on his lazer tag skills and I even made a baby cry. (I was trying to congratulate him on his table clearing skills.  He wasn't happy about it.)

The most important thing that occurred was budding romance.
These two are not dating, but they assured me that feeding each other pie was very romantic.

After half of the people had left, we remembered that it might be fun to get a picture.  So here are half of the people that were in attendance.
If you came and you're offended that you didn't make it into the picture.  Feel free to come by our house for a photo op with me and Robyn.

I'd say it was another successful geek holiday.  Now who's excited for Star Wars Day?  (May the 4th be with you.)


  1. I'm glad that your example of romance was with me and someone else's girlfriend. It was a good time like always.

    1. I was confused when she said it was romantic. But, I just pass on what I see.

      I'm glad you were able to make it.

  2. Sorry I missed the pie, but I did enjoy hanging out with you and Robyn when there wasn't even pie.

    1. I enjoyed it too. Thanks for hanging out, even if you missed out on pie.

  3. HOW did I miss this years party?! I feel ashamed.

    1. Don't worry. There will be more pie next year. Sorry you missed it.

  4. I'm pretty offended you took the picture after I left for my kissing hot men party. But at least I got to kiss hot men, so it's not all bad.

    1. I'm glad you got to kiss hot men. You'll have to tell me more about it at the Kayli journal party.

  5. Like Jen, I'm glad we got to visit even before the pie arrived. It all looked yummy!
